Clerk and Recorder Services for those impacted by the Marshall Fire

Marshall Fire graphic

Because proof of ownership property will likely be necessary to complete insurance claims for those who lost homes or vehicles in the fire, the Colorado Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles and our partners at Boulder County wanted to provide this information to those affected by the Marshall Fire as quickly as possible.

DMV services at the Disaster Assistance Center

The Colorado DMV will have a mobile driver license office to issue replacement driver licenses and state IDs to Marshall Fire survivors from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every day beginning Friday, Jan. 7 through Sunday, Jan. 16. at the Disaster Assistance Center.

Additionally, the Boulder County Clerk & Recorder – Motor Vehicle Division will have staff at the Disaster Assistance Center next to the State DMV's table from Friday, Jan. 7 through Sunday, Jan. 9. Staff can print duplicate vehicle titles, reissue plates, etc.

Motor Vehicle Services – Replacement titles, other needs

The Boulder County Clerk & Recorder can waive fees for transactions completed in person. Please let Boulder County Motor Vehicle staff know you are a victim in the Marshal Fire. Requests for these documents can also be completed online, however, those transactions are handled directly by the state Motor Vehicle office, require a current mailing address, and Boulder County has no ability to waive fees. Turnaround for online transactions might be about 2 to 3 weeks.


The most likely vehicle-related items you might need are:

  • Replacement vehicle title
  • Replacement vehicle registration 

If possible and to save time, make an appointment at one of our three offices. Appointments are typically more plentiful in our Lafayette office. 

A driver license ID is required for in-person service. Boulder County accepts digital IDs from the myColorado™, which is available in the Google Play or Apple App Store.

Driver License and ID card services

If you do not have a driver license or ID card, you can schedule an appointment at a Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles driver license office. Please use the email below for help with scheduling an emergency appointment.
